Brenda Kirkpatrick, CD, AIMI, LCCE, FACCE
Director, Lamaze International
Team Leader & Training Coordinator, A Healthy Birth Doula Associates

I've been working as a doula since 1992, one year after the birth of my first son. I officially trained and certified in 1999 after my second birth, my VBAC. I began midwifery school in 2003 and became a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator in 2006. Since then I've trained hundreds of birth and postpartum doulas, started the very first doula agency in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, offering a more thorough, complete training with apprenticeship. 

About my credentials: I'm a Healthy Birth Certified Doula, an Accredited Infant Massage Instructor, a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator and a Fellow of the Academy of Certified Childbirth Educators.  I proudly serve on the Board of Directors for Lamaze International.

My passion is childbirth education, helping new parents find the resources that help them make the very best choices for the arrival of their little one. I'd love the opportunity to meet with you and hear about just exactly how you would envision your perfect birth!
I'm a firm believer in setting your sites on what you WANT!
Please contact me by phone, text or email and we'll get things started!
